simple really 4 mains bolts and a few hoses.

although i was getting worried for while cos it was taking ages to get some pressure into the brake pedal but it worked eventually.

They cost 200 for V-tuning and um 22 for braided hoses. but i had to get all that sent over to me over here.

had me GF pumping the pedal while i was bleeding them Lets just say women are really thick

The caliper bolts require 10mm allen keys and will be difficult to get off without a long extension bar. They get lots of heat so they are buggers to get off.

strange alright

they only loock up when ya really stand on the brake which is to be expected seen at there supposed to be ABS.

Speaking of ABS does anyone wanna tell be how this works?i'm guesing it controls the fluid pressure or sumthing

top lads got the parts in 2 days and very helpful

Pedal feel is spongyish but i can live with it. i need to give them one last bleed i think anyways. i have standard hoses on the back so i might look at that also.

I was driving to work this morning and slowing down using just the brakes no gears and they were miles better that the old 1.2 jobbies.

Very pleased and they look great to, although i scratched half the gold hamerite off them puting them on the car cos i'm a clumsy fcuker
